Prevent Metal Corrosion with Powder Coating
As the days draw shorter and temperature begins to drop, it’s time to start planning for the harsh winter ahead, and specifically, metal corrosion. Here’s what you need to know about the best practices in protecting your metal in fall/winter 2021.
Whether you live in Illinois or another state that experiences harsh winter weather, metal corrosion can be difficult to keep from happening. Especially metal exposed to the elements. Did you know that powder coating can help prevent corrosion and extend your items for years longer?
What is Powder Coating
You may be wondering what powder coating is all about and why you need to be using it to protect your metal. In a nutshell, powder coating is an advanced method of applying a decorative and protective finish to virtually any type of metal that can be used both by industry and consumers since 1960.
Representing over 15% of the total industrial finishing market, powder is used on a wide array of products. More and more companies specify powder coatings for a high-quality, durable finish, allowing for maximized production, improved efficiencies, and simplified environmental compliance.
Protecting Your Metal Against the Elements
Powder coating revolutionized architecture, furniture manufacturing, and outdoor metal maintenance. This versatile coating protects metals and other materials from corrosion, dents, and scratches while elevating the surface finish.
Metals tend to corrode under normal usage conditions. Even stainless steel can rust under specific conditions. Here, it is helpful to apply a protective surface layer that is corrosion resistant and tough enough to withstand expected wear that the part in question may undergo.
